I am so sorry for the loss of this young man..My heart goes out to his family. May God somehow comfort them. My son is fighting over there in Operation Khanjar. I don't sleep..I can't think anymore...I worry...I pray...I worry... This is definitely a parents nightmare and so many of us are living it...
